It is unknown just where exactly this highly detailed and beautifully embroidered Elizabethan, or early Jacobean style jacket originated. While it is possible that it was made for The New World, where it has first been seen, most of the gowns from that film were recycled from either Shakespeare In Love or Elizabeth, so it is more likely that it came from one of those two productions. The jacket is seen again in the opening credits of The Tudors, most likely on Natalie Dormer as Anne Boleyn, though her face is not shown when we see the jacket.
Katie thought the jacket might be based on one from a portrait of Dorothy Cary, later Viscountess Rochford.
Katie S. thought the jacket looked remarkably like one found in the historic clothing collection of The Fashion Museum in Bath. I think, that though there are many Elizabethan and Jacobean jackets that look like this, this one, along with the one in the portait, may have been the inspiration. The pink bows are a bit of a clue as to what the inspiration may have been.
